Hi Friends! I loved this month’s Scrap Happy sewing in all shades of beautiful peacock fabrics. I am grateful to Kate at Tall Tales from Chiconia for organizing the fun. Thank you Kate!!
My F2F friends will recognize these blocks that I made with my scraps for Lynn. The deep shades of purple were scraps from a wedding quilt I made for a dear friends daughter. They look equally as beautiful here:)
The batik turquoise looks like a river stream or a sunny sky for the purple orchids with their green leaves. These scraps were from my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary quilt.
I love the stripey block. I think my favorite scrap is teal and blue circle piece. It just makes me smile😊. It is a scrap from my two year old grandson’s dinosaur quilt.
So,,,, I think my experiment in scrappy – ness was a success. What do you think?
I may have added too much of that lucious purple . Maybe I should have made them more golden…. well, I could have, but no way! When I think of a peacock, those blues and purples are what come to mind. It’s so fun!
And here are months one and two of this Scrap Happy adventure-
I will be making ten sets of these blocks and can’t wait to see how they all will look different. My next post will be Susan’s Red White and Blue Valor blocks. I can’t wait!
